I have a section in my right side bar here at Minou's Minute where I show my favorite quilt each month. Sometimes it is a quilt of my own making, but usually it is a beautiful creation I have seen at a show or on the internet. My quilt chapter meeting last month was a group show n' tell where each lady showed/told about her favorite quilt. Judy at Patchwork Times has a post about her favorite quilt (go over and read the story-it's quite nice)
So, following Judy's advice, here is my favorite quilt! It is a Dresden plate, begun by my Grandmother Ruby back in the 1950's here in Utah. A couple of the plates were pieced, plus some were just cut out when she passed on in the late 1980's. My mom inherited the UFO and passed it onto me a few years later. Mom would quilt a baby blanket or help out with a charity quilting bee at Church occasionally, but quilting was not her thing....she created beautiful clothing! I finished the piecing and a friend, Keri H., helped me handquilt it for my mom's 75th birthday. She hung the quilt in the stairway leading down to the basement of their Utah home. When mom passed on a few years ago, dad downsized to a smaller condo, and gave me the quilt. It's the only thing I own that I hand quilted myself...everything else hand quilted were gifts.
I like having this multi-generational creation in my home. It reminds me alot of my Grandmother in the 1940-1950's colors.
In Closing: Do you have a favorite quilt? Maybe something you made or purchased that brings back really good memories....Share, please!
